How to print out my passwords in Firefox? I need to migrate user names and passwords for various web sites to a new computer

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253828 does not seem to work because the caret (») is not visible in Firefox 72.0.2 (64-bit) that is on my machine. This is most annoying. Firefox and T'Bird are the most difficult software to migrate to new computers.

I need the export as a CVS. The other approaches either don't allow copy and paste or they are JSON and I have no clue how rto use that.

The other angle: logins.json (passwords) and key4.db (58+) for Passwords saved in the Password Manager I don't see a way to get that into a spreadsheet.

It is particularly annoying because there is an import function but no export function. I have over 300 web site user names and passwords. Hours and hours of work to just copy one at a time.

Win7, FF 70.0 64 bit. YouTube, Amazon, eBay, etc., don't auto login. Most have me login manually and work ok afterwards. Some after I manually login, don't transfer to member's area and request login again or see me as a guest. Some, Amazon, eBay, etc. send me a one time password. Email (aol.com) and my credit union auto logins are the only ones that works normally. I've worked thru all the related fixes I can find, but none has worked. Usually save history, tried custom history.

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

Signed a VERY pissed off user!

On my personal laptop, I have the Multi-Account Containers extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/) running smoothly. I'm currently on a public desktop computer , and I enabled Firefox Sync, which did a good job for passwords, bookmarks, etc, but it didn't sync any of my container info for the Multi-Account Containers add-on. I see the default containers: Personal, Work, Bank, Shopping. On my personal laptop, I have about a dozen containers. What's wrong?

Hello. I have Firefox set to notify me of new updates but though I always download them I don't immediately install them. My current version is 88.0.1.

Today I downloaded what I now know to be the all-new complete revamp version. But I don't want to install it on my main PC until I've looked into a little more and perhaps tried it out on a laptop.With it in

Is there a way of removing the downloaded version? With it in place, if I restart Firefox or reboot the computer it will automatically be installed, and I don't want that to happen just yet.

I'm running Windows 7 on a desktop PC.

Many thanks.

Since I upgraded to version 94.0.1 I can no longer access games at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. All I get is the initial splash screen.

It does work on MS Edge and since I no longer have Adobe Flash installed on my computer that shouldn't be an issue.

I have also submited this question to Shockwave. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Using FF52 because I don't want to lose SPECIFIC functionality I still have with that version. That functionality trumps all other considerations. Period.

In 52, I can open my bookmarks in a separate window ... that way it doesn't conflict with browser real estate AT ALL. Its behind browser window or on top as needed with a 'focus' click.

BUT ..... even if that is possible with Quantum ...

In that window, I want ALL bookmarks ... not just their folders ... to be visible, if needed. More specifically ....

...  I want to be able to open ANY two or more folders at one time (and keep them open) ... which is how I normally have this.        All in One Sidebar enabled this in FF52.       I do not want last folder closed when I open new one.     And I don't want to view bookmarks in a right hand side half of window.     (This is how FF was before 4.0, how it was enabled with AIOS by FF 29, etc.)

Please tell me if this combination of functionality is possible in current versions. Thank You.

pc working fine and after going to the store and restarting I cannot connect to my gmail accounts and a few other websites. Other pc's are fine. I could be wrong but I think I allowed a ffox update to 74.0 which would have installed with that restart. Pages are 100% white. I can go to gmail and sign in but it goes to the same blank page. I tried clearing cache and cookies, no go. Restated ffox and even the whole pc. I do not want to possibly mess up things worse with my browser. Could this be caused by the update and how do I fix it without making a mess?

Thanks to anyone reading this. I depend on several Firefox addons for my livelihood and need them to work.

The problem: Only a select few of my addons work after installing a parallel (older) version of firefox in a separate Program Files folder I called "Firefox 49.02. (why I wanted to do that: there is a specific iMacros version and some scripts that only work with 49.02, and I wanted to use FF 49.02 to run that version of iMacros while I wasn't using the regular updated version (i.e. FF 72).

I didn't expect my current addons to work in FF 49, so I wasn't surprised when they were disabled for that version.

BUT when opening the latest, FF 72, virtually all my addons were also disabled!

All disabled addons, except for 3 of them (out of almost 100), don't even have a blue switch or a way to enable them, even in the context menu, or the manage page (where you can enable auto-updates and see author details and home page etc.).

I ran a "Check for updates" for all addons, and a couple managed to update and enable, though I'm not sure if they were ones that had a switch.

I've attached a screenshot of the addons page showing some without an enable option beside a couple that do.

Note: All these addons worked flawlessly in this prior to installing FF 49

I've searched everywhere but everything is so saturated with fixing the "disabled addons certificate" problems that happened for everyone who *upgraded*. In my case, I installed a parallel downgraded version and the addon's won't work in either version.

Hope things are clear, sorry if I repeated my self. Please let me know any more information needed I am desperately seeking a solution for this.

This has been going for a couple of days.

I have tried starting in safe mode, didn't help.

I have tried disabling JavaScript, didn't help.

Two "main sites" affected, Feedly and Gmail. Feedly had this problem but it disappeared after a while. Now Gmail is having problems. I can move around and read mails but not respond to them.

Other sites affected "seems" to have in common that they are blog-type, perhaps like WordPress or similar.

I have a Windows 10 computer with the same browser setup and there have been no problems there so far.

The version is 86.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm not technically advanced so please be gentle with me.

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.
